Free Boundary Problems in Science and Technology
Avner Friedman
Free boundary problems in partial differential equations are those in which a part of the boundary of the domain is unknown in advance. The author gives examples to show how the theory of these problems has concrete applications, such as in electrophotography, chemical vapor deposition, coating flows, and tumor growth.

H. D. Kloosterman and His Work
Tonny A. Springer
The year 2000 marks the centenary of the birth of the late H. D. Kloosterman. Although Kloosterman's work in number theory, modular forms, and representation theory was done long ago, its significance has evolved over the years and the work remains relevant for contemporary mathematics.
